The End of Spring Soccer

The weeks felt long, but the season was short.  I can hardly believe that last Saturday was our final day of Spring soccer games.  

The Orange Warriors went out with a bang - almost everyone on the team scored a goal, including J!

He's already excited for the Fall season to begin.  

And even the Fireballs won, with M scoring 1 goal, and 1 assist.  

I am so proud of these kids.  I was never athletic as a kid (pudgy + nearsighted = incredibly uncoordinated), and I sincerely hope that our encouragement and support of athletics will benefit them throughout school and beyond.  We never push them - choosing to participate in sports is totally up to them - but we make sure they understand that once they commit, they MUST follow through with every practice and every game.  As long as they enjoy it, we are happy to keep supporting them.  Even if they are never soccer "stars", good things will come from this... for all of us.
